1. Tangible Understanding: Navigate the complexities of contour maps with ease. Our kit introduces 3D printed topography models of real-world landscapes. By physically interacting with these models, learners bridge the gap between abstract concepts and practical application.
 
2. Universal Application: From young learners to college students, this kit is adaptable to diverse age groups and skill levels. Educators can harness its versatility to explore a variety of STEM topics from mathematics to geography.
 
3. Interactive Learning: Create dynamic learning with interactive classroom activities. Students fill the area around the model with water at precise intervals, trace the water-land boundary onto a transparent plate, and watch a contour map materialize. This provides a direct mapping of 3D to 2D in a way sure to connect with students.
 
4. Comparative Analysis: Foster critical thinking by enabling students to compare map features across different topographies. From mountains to valleys and basin-and-range formations, these comparisons spark insightful discussions about the underlying patterns on two-dimensional maps.
 
Our economical kits suit any classroom budget and provide years of service. We have also developed a free lab activity guide to help spark the discussion in the classroom and help you get immediate feedback on your learners comprehension.
